spamassassin & procmail forward for 1 user


I currently have procmail / sendmail / spamassassin working for my linuxbox. It's a family webserver so I set up the procmailrc and spamassassin global files for everyone.

It's set up to prefix the subject line with [SPAM] if spamassassin considers it spam. Most everyone has something in their email clients to automatically move those emails to a separate directory so they don't even see it.

Everything's working fine.

I have a 10 year old niece that I'd like to keep from having to see some nasty spams. Although we could set her up with the same idea of moving it to a separate directory, I'd rather set up the server to forward all [SPAM] to her mother and let her mother handle it.

Does anyone know how to set this up?

Place the snip below in /etc/procmailrc

Code:
:0
* ^X-Spam-Status: Yes
{
        :0 c
        ! -f root@locahost username@my-domain.com
}

What does that do?

Does it forward anything marked as spam (^X-Spam-Status: Yes) that is intended for username@my-domain.com will be forwarded to root?


Also, I assume I put it AFTER my spamassassin call:

Code:
SHELL=/bin/csh
:0 fw
* < 256000
| spamc

It does what you want it to do.

-f is from this email to this email

and you put it after that setting you pasted

I'm not sure that's quite correct. I gave a test and if I get spam, it forwards it over and over and over again back to me.

I JUST want spam that goes to, say - user niece@myaddress.com to go to hermom@myaddress.com INSTEAD of going to niece@myaddres.com.
